  • Cost of Naloxone Soars as Overdose-Related Deaths Surge 2021-10-25
    Cost of Naloxone Soars as Overdose-Related Deaths Surge As the coronavirus pandemic ravaged communities across the U.S., another epidemic was quietly unfolding in the background: the opioid overdose crisis. For the past two decades, the drug epidemic has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives in the country. Recent data indicates that things have gotten worse during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the CDC, around 100,000 people died of overdoses during the first year of the pandemic, the majority of which were opioid-related. That’s a 30 percent increase from the year before. For more on this, The Takeaway spoke with Melody Schreiber, a contributor to the Guardian US and editor of the book What We Didn't Expect: Personal Stories About Premature Birth.  How 'Dopesick' Creator Danny Strong Brought the Opioid Epidemic to the Screen The new Hulu miniseries “Dopesick” takes a comprehensive overview of the opioid epidemic, following the rise of Purdue Pharma and the Sackler family, while also spotlighting the communities whose members have dealt with opioid addiction. Danny Strong joined The Takeaway to discuss why he brought this story to the screen and what he wants people to learn about the opioid epidemic. Affirming Housing for LGBTQ-SGL Elders For the second installment of our Aging While Queer series, Dr. Imani Woody joined to discuss the importance of affirming housing for LGBTQ-SGL elders and how Mary’s House is due to open its doors in 2023 after over a decade of planning and fund-raising. As a long-time advocate for marginalized populations, Dr. Imani decided to create a safe space for the aging members of the LGBTQ-SLG (same-gender-loving) community.  For transcripts, see individual segment pages.

How Corporate Lobbying Influences Lawmakers Democrats are still in the process of negotiating their social spending bill which is proposed to spend $3.5 trillion over 10 years to pay for huge investments in climate change, child care, education and health care. For a look at lobbying on Capitol Hill, The Takeaway talks with Lee Drutman, Senior Fellow at New America and author of “The Business of America is Lobbying.”  New Poll Shows Black Adults Are Increasingly Dissatisfied With The Direction Of The Country A new poll found that Black adults have become increasingly dissatisfied with the direction the country is headed. To discuss the findings of the latest poll, we spoke with Alicia Garza, co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network, and the head of the Black to the Future Action Fund.

  • Why Offshore Oil Drilling is So Bad For The Environment 2021-10-21
    Why Offshore Oil Drilling is So Bad For The Environment On October 1, a ruptured pipeline resulted in 25,000 gallons of crude spilling into the Pacific Ocean near Orange County, California. While the spill wasn’t as bad as initially feared, it reignited a debate over offshore drilling. California has an aging pipeline infrastructure with questionable federal oversight. And this wasn't the only large oil spill this year. Less than a month ago, after Hurricane Ida, a federal satellite detected the most oil spills from space in the Gulf of Mexico after a weather event. The federal government started using satellites to track spills and leaks starting a decade ago. The Takeaway spoke with Catherine Kilduff, Senior Attorney at The Center for Biological Diversity, and Wilma Subra, who deals with environmental human health issues, on behalf of the Louisiana Environmental Action Network. Biden Administration Plans to Rein In "Forever Chemicals" On Monday, the Biden administration unveiled its plans to rein in so-called “forever chemicals,” or PFAS. PFAS refers to a group of more than 4,000 toxic chemicals that don’t break down in the environment. PFAS are found in everything from our drinking water to our cookware. Even some rain jackets and cosmetics contain PFAS. But PFAS are also hazardous for our health. In fact, they’ve been linked with certain cancers, thyroid disease, and other health impacts, too. For more on this, The Takeaway spoke to Pat Rizzuto, chemicals reporter with Bloomberg Law.  Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach Are Now Running 24/7 Last week, President Biden announced that the Port of Los Angeles will move towards operating 24/7 to address the shipping delays that have led to nationwide supply chain disruptions this year. The Port of Long Beach has also expanded its operations towards a 24/7 schedule in an attempt to solve the supply chain issue. The Takeaway hears from Dr. Afif El-Hasan, Physician-in-Charge at Kaiser Permanente San Juan Capistrano Medical Offices and spokesperson for the American Lung Association, as well as Mario Cordero, the executive director of the Port of Long Beach.

  • Deep Dive with Dorian Warren: Child Care 2021-10-20
    Deep Dive with Dorian Warren: Child Care In this installment of The Takeaway Deep Dive, we tackle the very personal system of child care. Affordable child care is often inadequately addressed in the United States. That was laid bare during the height of the pandemic which exposed the inequities of a system that is in need of drastic changes and repair. Joining our hosts to discuss what changes need to be made to the child care system is Aqeela Muntaqim, Michigan Deputy Director of Mothering Justice, and Karen D’Souza, a writer at Ed Source, an organization that works to engage Californians on key education challenges with the goal of enhancing learning success. Sept. 16, 2021, file photo Pre-K teacher Vera Csizmadia teaches 3-and 4-year-old students in her classroom at the Dr. Charles Smith Early Childhood Center in Palisades Park, N.J. (Mary Altaffer/AP Photo) The Shadow Pandemic: Covid Creates Population of Orphaned Children A devastating number of children have lost a parent or caregiver to Covid, and they lack the financial and emotional support they need. Federal statistics are not yet available on how many U.S. children went into foster care last year; however, researchers estimate COVID-19 drove a 15% increase in orphaned children. JoNel Aleccia, senior correspondent at Kaiser Health News, discusses the impact of Covid on our children and the need for more support.

  • The Story of Jelani Day 2021-10-19
    The Story of Jelani Day In August, Jelani Day went missing and his car was found with no license plates or keys several days after he was reported missing. Ten days later, Jelani’s body was found in the Illinois River 60 miles from his campus in a town where less than 1 percent of the population is Black and he had no known connections. It's important to note that Jelani was an avid swimmer who’d competed on his school’s swim team. The Takeaway talks with Linda Foster, President of the Bloomington-Normal NAACP and James E. Wright II, assistant professor at Florida State University, specializing in policing, about the story of Jelani Day. Jury Selection in the Trial of Ahmaud Arbery's Accused Killers Began Monday Like the murder of George Floyd and so many others, Arbery’s death sparked a wave of racial justice uprisings across the U.S. in the summer of 2020. It also prompted the state of Georgia to make changes to its criminal justice law, including the passage of a hate crimes statute. For more on the trial, The Takeaway spoke to Nicole Lewis, senior editor of Jurisprudence at Slate.  Christian Missionaries Held Captive by Haitian Gang 17 Christian missionaries building an orphanage in Haiti remain captive after they were abducted by the 400 Mawozo gang on Saturday, October 16th. Kidnappings in Haiti continue to rise counting 328 during the first 8 months of 2021. We discuss the situation in Haiti leading up to the kidnappings and what we can anticipate with Jaqueline Charles, Caribbean and Haitian correspondent for the Miami Herald. The Life and Legacy of Colin Powell Colin Powell, the first Black U.S. Secretary of State, passed away on Monday due to complications from Covid-19 at the age of 84. Powell, a 4-star Army general, was also the first black national security advisor and chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. We look back at his life of public service and his role in leading the U.S. into the Iraq War. For transcripts, see individual segment pages.
